Richmond Montessori School enrolls children between two to six years of age and provides a multi-age learning environment. A mixed-age group provides opportunities for peer learning/teaching and fosters social development and responsibility.
Our classroom is designed to encourage children to work at their own pace while using scientifically designed Montessori materials. This enables the child to correct themselves with the help of built in control of error within each material, allowing the child to explore and perfect their own work.
Children are guided to work with the material until a level of competence is reached. This, in itself, is an evaluation of the child's ability. Each child is taught individually, giving the teachers immediate insight into the child's grasp of every concept taught.
The school will operate from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday to Friday. The school will be closed for two weeks during the Christmas break, as well as two weeks during the summer break. As well, the school will be closed on all Statutory and Civic holidays, including Easter Monday.
At three years of age, the child has already laid the foundations of the human personality and needs the special help of education in the school. The acquisitions he has made are such that we can say the child who enters school at three is an old man.
